"We truly appreciate the education our sons receive at Fort Worth Country Day. Our two eldest sons, John '16 and Nolan '18, are each pursuing engineering degrees at Texas A&M. They were certainly well-prepared for the rigors of college--thanks to the wonderful teachers and curriculum at FWCD. Our third son, Colin '21, has started to explore his options for life after he leaves "the nest." We are grateful knowing whatever he decides to pursue, his educational foundation is strong."
-John and Catherine Fredian
